Corner Office Chic: The Preginista Edition


Just because you’re expecting doesn’t mean you have to compromise your style. Fortunately for the modern mom-to-be, there are many maternity lines and designers that have updated their offerings to accommodate the woman who is the HBIC and just happens to be carrying a tiny human in her tummy.

Also, a lot of traditional designers are expanding their offerings to include maternity stylings. Whether you’re a recent grad about to enter the job market, or a seasoned professional in need of a refresh, there are certain pieces that you can always count on for timeless 9-to-5 polish.

Be the boss while pregnant.

The five must have pieces include: 1) a pair of straight leg trousers in grey, black, white, creme or navy. 2) Also, a powerful structured bag will announce you before you enter the room. 3) All eyes will also naturally flow to  your pumps. A pair of classic Mary Janes in a comfortable heel, but polished with solid hardware is all you need to keep the standard high. 4) To stay true to your feminine side, invest in quality blouses and white crisp shirts. 5) Finally, arm your wardrobe with at least one or two LBD (Little Black Dresses).

These must-have pieces will keep you feeling empowered and prepared to conquer each day. Check out our curated selection from our friends at ShopStyle below for inspiration:

Trend Alert: Look smart and trendy with a Book Clutches ( From Couture to DIY)

Book clutches are all the rage these days among fashionistas, celebs and on some European runways.  They have curious onlookers who spot well-dressed women toting one of these asking, “Is that a well-read woman or a fashionista or both?”

With book clutches you can look smart and trendy at the same time.

Clutches from couture labels like Farfetch, Nina Ricci, and Olympia Le-Tan cost between $1,000 and up. A pretty penny for a woman on a budget.

As an alternative, you could rent a $450 Kate Spade book clutch for just $15 at Rent the Runway, or get a Betsey Johnson book clutch for just $68 or an Aldo book clutch for just $40.

Finally, if none of these are an option or  you don’t care for the books featured, you could always make yoru own. using tutorials from DIY Runway or at ThanksIMadeIt.

Costello Tagliapietra, Prabel Gurung, BCBG Max Azria, Rachel Zoe
During this past week’s Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week, fashionistas who are preggers might have peeped some pretty cool trends they’d love to wear this Spring. Those stylish divas who are first to sport the latest trends may be wondering how they could pull it off while incubating a bun in the oven.
We usually recommend moms-to-be avoid trends and execute them in accessories, scarves, jewelry, belts, hats and other non clothing items, but this season, we saw some trends that are maternity friendly.
The collared shirt, pastels, wide leg pants and collarless coats and jackets, for example, are some of the trends we peeped on runway shows that could actually be converted into a maternity version.
Here are some pieces we curated for you to check out for inspiration, powered by Shopstyle!
Which would you do?
